In a forest of terror, surrounded by an orchestra in the mountain, live three little girls, aged 8, 12 and 16 years old. The first one, macrocephalic and scientifically curious. The second one, obsessed with morals, the daughter of an ancient Mesopotamian king. The third one so big, she sentenced her mother to death with her birth.

These are three girls, played by six voices.

The three pairs of actresses, similar both in timbre and physique, populate the stage inside a universe deeply connected to horror cinema and the darkest children’s tales.

Between nonsense, delirium and extravagant innocence, through a strong connection to a musical, rhythmic and polyphonic essence, we walk their walk in the forest, from the frog’s dissection to the secret initiation in the art of smoking.

The Text is published in the Livrinhos de Teatro nr. 135 collection (Artistas Unidos/Cotovia).
